Pioneer and Onkyo have announced that a raft of products that have received Works with Sonos programme certification, a process which enables seamlessly connection with the Sonos Home Sound System.

The feature allows selected Pioneer and Onkyo products to be integrated with a Sonos Home Sound System on the same Wi-Fi network, allowing basic control via the Sonos app. The audio output from compatible Onkyo and Pioneer components will need to be connected to a Sonos Connect Wireless Music System unit.

When set up, users will be able to play music via the Sonos app and the Pioneer or Onkyo component will automatically wake up, switch to the right input, and allow volume control via the Sonos amp.

A firmware upgrade is required to add the Works with Sonos functionality, available from the brand’s respective websites.
